Disclosure: I received a comped stay at Great Wolf Lodge and ShadowQuest game play in order to facilitate my review. However, all opinions are my own.
My family and I were invited to attend the Debut of ShadowQuest at Great Wolf Lodge.
What is ShadowQuest?
For the past several years, guests at Great Wolf Lodge have become Master Magi as they played the unique, live action, interactive gaming adventure, MagiQuest®. Now, a new experience is coming to the family entertainment resorts that takes players on quests through new worlds and offers fun for everyone with the wave of a wand. ShadowQuest, the latest game from Creative Kingdoms, LLC, creators of MagiQuest, challenges players to embark on a journey to save the light.
ShadowQuest is a completely new adventure and game. Utilizing the same wand technology of its sister game, MagiQuest™, ShadowQuest takes players through the resort in search of crystals, artifacts and magical places. They can also summon Lumina, leader of the light pixies to help choose which quest to embark on.
Players will select from a variety of quests and adventures that result in a collection of special powers. As these powers increase, players proceed to higher levels of the game where the level of difficulty also increases. ShadowQuest is not confined to a computer screen. It places players inside a three-dimensional, interactive fantasy world where they must follow clues that lead deeper into a mythical realm populated by an array of characters and creatures.
My kids had an absolute BLAST playing ShadowQuest. They each got their own wand and set off on their own adventure. My husband followed Faith around and I tried to keep up with Abbie. Dylan and Caleb each went in their own direction.
There were 4 floors of fun. The kids ran non-stop completing quests and were insistent on finding everything. We tried to cram all quests into one night but if we were going to be at the lodge for a few days in a row, I can see doing a little bit each day. (because, frankly, I was exhausted!) 😉
Take a look at the video my husband put together for his blog Review Dad:
We packed as much as we could into our overnight stay. We also took in the water park.
The kids had a lot of fun while at Great Wolf. It’s a fun resort to have a little staycation and extra bonus that MagiQuest is at the resort as well. My family definitely gives ShadowQuest and Great Wolf Lodge 2 thumbs up!
